Criteria Ratings Pts
This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome Holistic Scoring Rubric
In holistic reading, raters assign each essay to a scoring category according to its dominant characteristics. The categories below describe the characteristics typical of papers at six different levels of competence. All the desсrіptions take into account that the papers they categorize represent two hours of reading and writing, not a more extended period of drafting and revision.
6 pts
Score 6
A 6 paper commands attention because of its insightful development and mature style. It presents a cogent analysis of or response to the text, elaborating that response with well-chosen examples and persuasive reasoning. The 6 paper shows that its writer can usually choose words aptly, use sophisticated sentences effectively, and observe the conventions of written English.
5 pts
Score 5
A 5 paper is clearly competent. It presents a thoughtful analysis of or response to the text, elaborating that response with appropriate examples and sensible reasoning. A 5 paper typically has a less fluent and complex style than a 6, but does show that its writer can usually choose words accurately, vary sentences effectively, and observe the conventions of written English
4 pts
Score 4
A 4 paper is satisfactory, sometimes marginally so. It presents an adequate analysis of or response to the text, elaborating that response with sufficient examples and acceptable reasoning. Just as these examples and this reasoning, will ordinarily be less developed than those in 5 papers, so will the 4 paper′s style be less effective. Nevertheless, a 4 paper shows that its writer can usually choose words of sufficient precision, control sentences of reasonable variety, and observe the conventions of written English.
3 pts

A 3 paper is unsatisfactory in one or more of the following ways. It may analyze or respond to the text illogically; it may lack coherent structure or elaboration with examples; it may reflect an incomplete understanding of the text or the topic.
